Hardscape Design FAQs

What factors should I consider in designing my hardscape project?
When envisioning your hardscape project, start by identifying how you want to use the space. Whether it’s connecting with nature, hosting dinners, sunbathing, or simply enhancing your home’s curb appeal, patios offer versatile solutions. Next, think about specific features you might want, such as fire pits, built-in seating, or outdoor kitchens and bars. Lastly, consider the aesthetic appeal – the classic beauty of natural stone or the wide-ranging customizability of pavers can significantly influence the look and feel of your outdoor space.
What are the cost considerations for hardscaping design and installation?
From pathways to patios to extensive outdoor living areas with built-in kitchens, every hardscaping project is unique. For a simple patio area that incorporates small flourishes like a decorative border, expect the project to begin around $7,500. Hardscaped areas with custom features likes fire pits, built-in seating walls, steps or retaining walls typically start around $20k. For more elaborate outdoor living spaces with high-quality materials, outdoor kitchens, and extensive lounge and dining setups, the investment can exceed $60k. Remember, the cost varies based on the project’s uniqueness, material quality, and design complexity.
How long does it typically take to finish a paver and patio project?
The completion time for a paver and patio project usually spans 2-3 weeks. Depending on various factors such as the season, design intricacies, material availability, and prep work like demo, the project might extend to about a month. We will make it a point to give you a comprehensive schedule from the beginning to keep you informed every step of the way.
